Bake Healthy Egg Breakfast Muffins

Starting October 1st, we made a diet change in our home. We decided to cut out as much white sugar and white flour as possible. I have thyroid disease (hypothyroidism), and it seems to have been really affecting my health lately – especially my digestive health, it seems. I asked my Dr if I should try going gluten-free, but he suggested to simply cut out more processed foods to see if that helped. It really, really has. It’s been hard, but it’s also been fun to experiment with some more creative meals and snacks that don’t have white sugar or flour in them. One of our latest favourite breakfasts and snacks are these tasty egg “muffins” that are so simple to make and honestly so yummy. I usually make a dozen or two every Sunday, and then I refrigerate them for easy re-heating and snacking throughout the week.
